Thanks for your kind words. I am not using REX or NE or AS. Everything is FSX default and the plane is freeware HJG model.

Dave,

Thank you for kind words. Of course I am using your airlines as specified by your VA rules. I just thought you and your pilots would appreciate my nice screenshot posts showing history of commercial aviation if that is okay with you.
